The Yankees came away from Boston with a split and are now favorites to win the series against the Red Sox. You could definitely make the argument that Boston is lucky that it lost only one of the first two games, but that’s just spilled milk.

Game 3 will feature a pitching matchup between two very live arms. Luis Severino will go for the Yankees while Nate Eovaldi will toe the rubber for Alex Cora’s Red Sox.

Severino comes into this one off a decent performance in the wild-card game against the A’s. The 24-year-old was effectively wild, giving up two hits, four walks and striking out seven in four scoreless innings.

Aaron Boone will be hoping for a longer outing from Severino, who posted a 3.39 ERA, 3.10 xFIP and 10.35 K/9 in 191.1 innings in 2018, on Monday night.

Eovaldi is a true power pitcher who relies heavily on his four-seam fastball, which hits 100 mph on the radar gun, and his cutter.  The 28-year-old split his season between Tampa Bay and Boston, posting a 3.81 ERA, 3.67 xFIP and 8.19 K/9 in 111 innings pitched this season.
